05 Creativity and Innovation for Growth

-
Hauptschule
Seminar
english language

The importance of capital or labour as prerequisites for economic growth are not challenged. However, productive investment (and growth), especially in industrialised countries, is increasingly driven by non-R&D innovation or knowledge-based capital.

Europe’s future role as a global economic player is increasingly dependent on its capacity and willingness to foster these sources of economic growth. However, policy frameworks and institutions are still best suited to a world in which physical capital drove growth, while the effects of non-R&D innovation or knowledge-based capital on growth and productivity are underestimated. The seminar attempts to present the different concepts and importance of non-R&D innovation and knowledge-based capital and will analyse its potential to position Europe as an economic and technological leader in the future.
